My desktop has been...how can I say this? Under the weather for a few weeks, and since that is the case, all of my offline story project on it are out-of-date with my online projects (which I have been working on using my laptop).
This past week though, I got my desktop back, and now I've got another problem. I can't get the offline desktop application to sync with the online app. Basically I sat there for fifteen minutes with "Going online, Please Wait..." sitting on my screen, but nothing happened. So I uninstalled Story, and then installed it again, but to my surprise all of my offline documents were still there for some reason, and it still won't go online.
Basically, I'm wanting to know how to get this thing to sync up. Any help is welcome.
Okay, problem solved.
For anyone else that runs into this little brick wall, what I ended up having to do was uninstall Adobe AIR and Story, reinstall both, and then it synced without a hitch whatsoever.
From your post it seems that you just want your online data synced to offline database.You don't want it otherr way right ?
If that's the case
Can you try following:
1) You don't need to uninstall adobe story. just close the adobe story application if it's already running.
2) after that on
Delete "%appdata%\Adobe\AIR\ELS\com.adobe.AdobeStory*" (i.e. delete all the folders starting with
Delete the application stored data: User > Library > Application Support > AIR > ELS > com.adobe.AdobeStory*
3) Now try logging in and you will see that you logged-in in online mode, your online data will start syncing to offline database automatically.
Note: By doing this you will lose all the data present in offline database (online database will not be touched).
i.e. if there were some changes done in offline mode and were not synced to online database, will be gone.
That's find and dandy, except that now I can't login to Story with the desktop application.
I keep getting the error "Login failed, please try again later." I want to point out that I can login with my browser.
I went in and deleted all of the files he said too. But like I said, now I can't login using the desktop application, I get the message "Failed to connect. Please try again later."
And Windows 7, and everything is up-to-date.
This worked perfectly. I was concerned about losing my data, so from within Story, I used the "Save File to Disk" option on my screenplays that weren't synced. Then from within the web version of Story, I imported the ones that hadn't been synced. Fortunately, that was only one script for me, but depending on when Story stopped going online for you, that may be a bunch. But by using the web version as my base, I only had to worry about the ones that hadn't been synced since my last changes, rather than having to export and import the entire database.
